3), although a non-significant increase in hot plate response latency was observed in non-stressed animals injected with MgS[O.sub.4] on day 4 of the experimental design, before the post-stress hot-plate test (Fig.
The sensory-motor function was assessed by means of visual-auditory response latency and the executive function component assessed was short-term working memory.
The response latency was defined as the time-to-response peak in the PSTH after the leading edge of the target arrived at the RF edge.
For modalities employing very brief stimuli, such as an electrical pulse or an acoustic click, it seems clear that the beginning of stimulus rise time equals stimulus onset, thus being the reference point for response latency measurements.
The activity was assessed using chemical, mechanical and thermal nociceptive models which revealed that the extract when administered orally at doses 15 and 30 mg/kg showed significant increase ( pless than 0.001 ) in the response latency to noxious stimuli with most potent activity displayed at 30mg/kg which is comparable to the positive control in all models of nociception.
Following Greenwald, Nosek, and Banaji (2003), the IAT effect was computed in two ways: a) to establish the direct effect of the IAT, and b) to avoid the influence of a nonnormal data distribution, which is a common occurrence in response latency data.
